Playful Pooch Enjoys A Sunny Day In Owner's Pool

Wearing black in the summer is hard. Black soaks up so much heat, we humans know better and avoid it at all costs. But what if you can’t shed the black off your body?

When it comes to cooling off in the scorching summer heat, man has plenty of choices: either blasting up the air conditioner, downing a cold brew or an ice cream, even just dunking into a pool can make a world of a difference. Our pets, on the other hand, don’t have so many choices. They can either hyperventilate to cool down or lie belly side on the cold floor. Unless we provide them with a way to reduce their body temperature, this is all they’ve got.

Teal might have had the bad fortune to be born with black fur in this scorching season, but that didn’t stop her from having some summer fun! It looks like she has found her favorite summer activity.

What can a black Lab do in the heat anyway? Good thing Teal decided that her black coat and the scorching Washington heat will not take away hew fun in the sun. So she made herself comfortable in the kiddie pool in her owner’s backyard. Quite a wise plan, don’t you think?

The weather looks nice and warm in Moses Lake, Washington, but all Teal cares about is smacking the water in the kiddie pool! She couldn’t be happier. Her owner says that she is a very good swimmer, but she is even better at splashing. We see her kicking the water with her front paws, creating big waves and just having a blast.

She stops the splashing for a second to cool off by swimming a few laps around the tiny pool, but then stops to rest and continues with the water slapping. It’s like watching a little kid in the water for the first time. What wouldn’t we give to be with her in that water right now!

“Is she trying to dig the water? - No, I tossed a rock in there” say the two men behind the camera and that seems like a reasonable explanation for Teal’s obsession with the water. Whatever it is though, we are glad she is having so much fun with it.

Another big black dog tried to cool off a bit in the backyard pool. The only difference here is Baxter found it much more pleasing to just sneak into it while his owner wasn’t looking. When he got caught, his reaction is comedy gold!

The big pooch splashes around, having the time of his life, roaming around in the water. As he makes one lap around, he notices Jerry filming him, not knowing that he has kept a close eye on the pet this whole time. Like the drama queen that he apparently is, Baxter slowly wades to the edge of the pool and begins to get out of the water. He does not break eye contact once. Mind you, Jerry has not called for his dog, now did he utter a single word to him. In fact, Jerry has not even left the house; he is still inside, camera rolling and capture this priceless moment.

Before Baxter exits the scene, he barks, as if to call out on his owner for voyeuring on his summertime fun. He starts with a whisper, like he is building up the tensions, then slowly starts getting louder and louder, hiding behind the corner of the house. Jerry does nothing, other than keep his camera still and giggle silently at his dog’s attempt to clear out the situation.
